GFA suspends football

By on

Following a directive by President Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo for all social gatherings including sporting events to be suspended for the next four weeks, the Ghana Football Association (GFA) has halted all its competitions with immediate effect.

In a statement released last week, the GFA had announced that while all competitions will go ahead as scheduled, it will continue to liaise with government and follow all national health protocols on the matter.

A few moments after President Akufo-Addo’s nationwide broadcast on Sunday, the GFA pledged to immediately follow the new issued protocols and guidelines.

“The Association will continue to engage the relevant institutions on this matter and update its members and all stakeholders of any changes,” the country’s football-governing body said on its website.

Ghana has so far recorded six cases of the virus with no deaths.
